Hi ladies! I'm a ftm mom coming over from the D14 board. My little girl was born lastnight via c-section at 32w1d due to me having HELLP syndrome. I look forward to getting to know you guys and having some people to relate to in the preemie department!
Re: Intro: ftm with preemie due to HELLP syndrome
I hope you are able to take care of yourself as much as possible from your surgery while trying to be a mom to a baby in the NICU.. Unfortunately, this challenge isn't covered very well in "What to Expect" type books. There are a lot of strong women here who can cheer you and your little one on.
Best wishes on a quick & healthy NICU stay and going home soon!
I'm not new. I just hate The Bump.
I'm also a HELLP mom! My dd was born at 29-6 weighing 2lb 3oz. We had a 66 day NICU stay and she's now almost 15mos.
Take care of yourself and be prepared to be amazed at the little peanut--they're fighters!!
